The North Coast Ecology Centre Society is excited to bring an an engaging, interactive Pop-Up Ecology Centre to Prince Rupert this summer. The Pop-Up will be a place where you can come face-to-face with a sea cucumber, touch a sea star, measure how big a humpback skull is, and peer through a microscope to discover the tiniest animals in our ocean. Our trained interpretive staff and volunteers will bring coastal ecology to life for visitors.
This four-week temporary exhibit (July 21-August 15,2021) will use space in the Northland Cruise Terminal, graciously donated by the Prince Rupert Port Authority. Not only will this further activate Prince Rupert’s waterfront, but it will bring a silver lining to another cancelled cruise season. After an extremely challenging 18 months for everyone due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we can’t wait to bring something new, fun and educational to our community.
We have put together the building blocks to make this Pop-Up a success. We’ve secured an amazing team of board members, volunteers and staff that have expertise in biology, education, interpretation, and animal care. We have the space, the tanks, the permits, and the props. Now, we need you!
Help bring this Pop-Up to Prince Rupert by donating to our GoFundMe campaign. Your support of this initiative has the power to inspire younger generations, spark conversation, motivate stewardship and bring something very special to our waterfront after such a difficult year. Join us in making this Pop-Up as inspiring as possible by making a donation.
Stay tuned for more details about this exciting endeavour!
